Summer is just about here! While we take a break from our school routine here, we do a lot of reading! I wanted to create a fun way to challenge my little ones to read, so I came up with the challenge to read 100 books together this summer. I also created a chart to track the books we read.
On this chart, there are 100 colored circles. After we read a book together, we will either put a sticker on the circle, mark it with an ‘X’, or stamp it with a Do-a-Dot marker.
I also created a sheet to write down the names of the books we read.
We have the challenge displayed on our bulletin board, so it will easy to keep track of and mark off.
We love reading around here, but this challenge gives us a goal to work towards this summer! I told my boys that after we complete the challenge, I will reward them with something special. In the past, we’ve had special dates or a trip to the bookstore to purchase a new book. Just something fun to look forward to!
So now I’m going to ask your family to take the 100 book challenge! If you are up for it, download the challenge printable here —> Summer Reading Challenge
After you print out the two pages, tape the two pages together.

Happy Summer and Happy Reading!
